If you would like to sponsor a team, please email us, call us, or download the form and send it in. The cost of a team sponsorship for our Spring Season is $325 and our Fall Season is $175 and gets your company name on the front of a team's uniform shirt.

You also have the option to sponsor an individual girl or multiple girls that maybe can't afford to pay the registration fee. We certainly don't want those girls to not have a safe haven to be girls and to learn valuable life lessons.

If you would like to sponsor the league using a fence banner, please email us, call us, or download the form and send it in! The initial cost for the banner is $175. If you already have a banner with us, the yearly renewal fee is only $75! This banner gets great exposure by all people at the park, no matter what field it is on. Just send us your logo and we will customize the banner just for you!

Check the HANDOUTS section for our Sponsor Form.

If you are a player and bring in a sponsor, your registration fee is waived (or refunded if you already paid). This is on a first come/first serve basis.

Thank you for your support!!!




 
COACH / TEAM MOM
 
Coaches & Team Moms, please do not forget that we need an application for each season (Spring, Fall). The application needs to be turned in ASAP so that we can do the background check before you step onto the field (County rules). You also must be certified before you can step onto the field. This certification HAS to be with you at all times (County rules). You can get your certification online at www.nays.org for a small fee.(Click Coach-NYSCA online clinics-then signup-Softball-Polk County Rec.-Complete Training)

Check the HANDOUTS section for our Coach / Team Mom Form.


 

SCOREKEEPERS
To insure that players will be eligible for All Stars, the scorebooks MUST be completed correctly. They must have GAME DATE, players FIRST and LAST name, NUMBER and POSITION. EVERY game needs to be recorded, even if you are the visitor. Failure to properly document may exclude players from eligibility. The scorebook is to be turned in to the concession stand after every game. Thank You.



 

If you have taken photographs that you want us to place on the website, please e-mail them to us. Please have them in small web or large e-mail size jpegs. You may also burn a disk and provide it to us.
